Looking at the interior, I think they have styled the car so that nobody will want to own one!

Commented On: 2013 Smart Electric Drive: Better Than Earlier Electric Smarts?

My next door neighbor, stopped for a red light in his Honda Accord yesterday, was rear ended by a Ford F150 Pickup at around 30 mph. Pretty much totaled the Honda. Had he been in a Smart car, I would probably be going to his funeral tomorrow.

The US is filled with BIG cars and BIGGER trucks. No place for such a small kiddy car, in my opinion.

They certainly won't have to put up signs or a billboard to advertise that there is a charging station located under the wind turbine.

E10 or E15 is VERY detrimental to our antique boats and classic automobiles. I don't use it and will not use it.

Hmmm. At the current build rate, they should be able to fulfill the 12,200 orders in about 23.5 years.

My wife put her order in for a new Cessna Skylane 182 airplane eleven weeks ago. It was delivered this morning. So for a price a little more than double of an "S", she has her ride and I'm still driving my company car.

Commented On: Diesel Cars: Should You Buy One? The Pros And Cons

Green Car Reports 0 Views 15 comments
Our company is working with both Jaguar and EPA. Car went to EPA in Leesburg, VA for 9 days before I flew up to get it. Not quite sure what the deal is, but company did have a different Jaguar brought into the US about 16 months ago. That one stayed with us for 13 months before we shipped it back to France. Mine is supposed to be here for only 12 months. No Diplomatic plates, but she is wearing her French plates. Me, I just got the gig to use the car as my daily driver, probably because from what I was told by my boss, my driving milage is highest in the company.

Oh, and I am not a "fanboy", just a happy user.

I have a company 2012 Jaguar XF 2.2 TD. Company purchased car in France (along with 29 more for use in Europe) and had it shipped to US for my full time use. Today is the end of my third week with the car. I'm averaging 53.2 mpg to date, driving an average of 1,092 miles per week. I drive 70 where allowed. My territory: Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas. Yeah, a lot of area, but the pay is fantastic (as long as I hit at least quota).

HP rated at 190 PS (1 HP = 1.014 PS) or 189 HP.

Gas, on old car: 3278 miles @23.2 mpg = 141.3 gal @ $3.36/gal = $474.77.

Diesel to date: 3278 miles @ 51.7 mpg = 63.41 gal @ $4.01/gal = $254.28.

Car runs smooth, quiet, no smoke and 0 to 60 in 8.5 seconds.

I'm happy with savings!
